Life happens while you wait for it to change

We all have been there. Waiting for situations to change in our lives so that we can get on with our life.

Guess what. Life is passing you by as you wait for change. Things may not be as we want them to be, but for now that is your life, like it or not. If we are always wanting things to change, we miss our current life that is right before us.

We must live life in the present. Too many I hear, are always talking about if only things were this way or that, then I could do this or that. Guess what, tomorrow may never come.

It’s good to hope and pray regarding change, but we must not camp out there. We are given one day at a time, actually one moment at a time. So we must be thankful for this moment in time.

What we have always dreamed for may never come. Some have had childhood dreams that they are still waiting for them to come true. Guess what, they may never come true.

Now I am not trying to purposely pop your bubble, but trying to get you to realize that life is in the present, not the future.

God has placed you right where you are at for the present. He has allowed things to happen for a reason. He has placed people in your life for a reason. He has purpose for all He does.

Take a look around you today and notice the present, the moment. Notice the people that He has put into your life. They may be at home, at work or just in passing by them. Don’t live for tomorrow or live for change. Enjoy the present, it’s all you have for now.

Tomorrow may never come, live today.

    Greetings. We are to be about our Fathers business 24/7, even if the ambience isn’t to our liking. I’ve been guilty of being overcharged by what I desire to be; even to the point of neglegence in the now. May we truly arrive at the place where our prayer unto the Lord Jesus is “Thy will be done.”

    Have a blessed day in Jesus.

    Timbob,
    Amen brother! It may be easy to go there, but by His grace we not live there.
    Thanks, and may you continue to grow in Christ.

    Great thoughts here. They spurred me on today. Have you read the book, Running Scared, by Ed Welch? Some similar thoughts about how worriers live in the future instead of the present. Thanks again.

    Doug,
    Thanks. No I have not seen the book, but if it deals with the subject in light of eternity, it must be good.
    God be with you.
